Synopsis

Final volume of the three-part documentary series about the preparations for the Allied invasion of Normandy in 1944, and the fighting on the day itself. This volume looks at the invasion from the British perspective, from the parachute assault by the 6th Airborne to capture the vital bridges on the east flank of the battlefield, to the landings on Gold, Juno and Sword beaches. With British, American and Canadian soldiers ashore in occupied France, the Longest Day was almost over.
